The USEA invites everyone to join the greatest eventing celebration that takes place every year – the USEA National Year-End Awards Ceremony! Taking place the evening before the first event of the calendar year 2021, the 2020 USEA Year-End Awards Ceremony will be held virtually via Zoom Webinar on Friday, January 8 at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time. One of the most unique aspects of this upcoming ceremony is that it will be free and available for anyone to join.
The ceremony will be led by Master of Ceremonies James Wofford as he recognizes the great achievements USEA members accomplished in 2020. The awards presented during this virtual ceremony will include the USEA leaderboard of champions presented by Nunn Finer, the overall leaderboard champions, and a variety of appreciation awards.
Several awards including the Wofford Cup and the USEA President’s Lifetime Achievement Award will only be announced during the ceremony. Therefore, everyone should attend to see who the recipients will be of these special awards.

In 2019, the USEA introduced two new national leaderboards: the 6-year-old horse and 7-year-old horse leaderboards. The 6-year-old horse leaderboard ranks 6-year-old horses at the Preliminary, CCI2*-S, and CCI2*-L levels and the 7-year-old horse leaderboard ranks 7-year-old horses at the Intermediate, CCI3*-S, and CCI3*-L levels.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is proud to announce the formation of a new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, and a new partnership between the USEA Foundation and Strides for Equality Equestrians (SEE).
The USEA is very sad to hear the news of the passing of From, the 28-year-old Russian Thoroughbred gelding (Mif x Floema), owned by Charlotte Harris and ridden by Stephen Bradley.
In less than a year the USEA Foundation, USEA, and a group of passionate stakeholders have managed to raise $500,000 to build frangible fences thanks to donations from USEA members and eventing enthusiasts around the country. This money has gone directly to 116 different USEA recognized events with 151 frangible tables, 53 oxers, and 34 gate/wall fences already out on course – all built with grants distributed by the USEA Foundation.
